Ippodo Mail (No. 43): Obukucha is Now Available!
It's hard to believe there's only a month and a half left in 2017. The good news is that it also means our Obukucha (Good Fortune Tea), a delicious genmaicha, is now available for a limited time.



Obukucha (Available from Nov. 15 to Jan. 15)

Obukucha (Available from Nov. 15 to Jan. 15)

Since ancient times, people in Kyoto have had the custom of drinking Obukucha to symbolize putting the troubles of the previous year behind them and ushering in a new year of good fortune. Although traditionally drunk during New Year's, our Obukucha is a specially blended genmaicha that can be enjoyed throughout late-autumn and early winter, as well.

Yakishime Kyusu Teapot (Banko-yaki)

Yakishime Kyusu Teapot (Banko-yaki)
¥13,500

This kyusu has a textured feel of unglazed clay pottery that feels wonderful in your hand, and the way the ridge around the opening rises elegantly from the curved surface is exquisite. It is a perfect kyusu for preparing Obukucha, and around this time of year, some people use it almost exclusively for that.

Obukucha as a Gift

Obukucha is a wonderful tea for drinking on a regular basis, and often given as a gift in Japan in winter, particularly during New Year's. You can buy it on its own, or in a variety of sets combined with other teas.

We always become filled with excitement and anticipation when Obukucha goes on sale in mid-November, because it means New Year's is just around the corner. Take advantage of this time to make this delicious tea a part of your daily life.
